Waiting For A Refill On Christmas Eve - Poem by Glen Martin Fitch

Who lives the glittered lives
of greeting cards?
Old Santa's just the first
of many lies.
Who dare resists
when every song bombards us,

you lived your life a hostage
trapped in dinner table wars.
If mandatory cheer

escape allotted bonds, genetic chains,
renounce the bad,
refuse what makes you sad,
create traditions new
of what remains.

safe and calm?
